Jets star Jamal Adams wants New York to sign Dez Bryant
There was a time when the New York Jets nearly traded Jamal Adams, but now the versatile safety is recruiting for the franchise. Ahead of the upcoming offseason, Adams took to Twitter to express his interest in New York signing Dez Bryant.
Bryant was out of the NFL in 2019 and hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2017. Back in 2018, Bryant signed with the New Orleans Saints before he tore his Achilles in one of his first practices with the team.
Now, the free-agent wide receiver has been itching to get back in the NFL after making a full recovery from his injury. On Sunday, Bryant exclaimed that he’d love to return to the Dallas Cowboys—where he spent his first eight seasons in the NFL.
During his time with the Cowboys, Bryant combined for 531 receptions, 7,459 yards, and 73 touchdowns. At 31-years-old, Bryant believes he has something left in the tank and could produce for a team in the NFL.
When Bryant tweeted his idea of playing for the Cowboys, Adams didn’t waste time saying he would love to play alongside the veteran wideout. Considering his response, Adams appears to be a fan of the idea of New York adding Bryant.
Currently, the Jets boast a receiving corps that includes Jamison Crowder, Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, and Demaryius Thomas. Among them, both Anderson and Thomas are set to become free agents this offseason.
Therefore, the Jets could definitely use an experienced wide receiver on their roster in 2020. However, it remains to be seen if the front office shares the same opinion of Bryant that Adams has.
